Dahi Aloo Chaat/ Aloo Dahi Chaat

After breakfast around the globe, this week's theme for this long month blogging marathon is Blogger's choice. Valli doesnt want to stick with a theme for this week as this week have just three days to finish this month of long blogging, obviously we marathoners can pick anything to blog about. I didnt searched for a long and i chosed Street foods/Chaat foods for this week's theme. To kick start this week's theme, am posting Dahi aloo chaat, this chaat is quite famous and very known popular chaat recipe in North India, this chaat can be easily prepared at home as this chaat goes for simple and basic ingredients.

To make this alluring Dahi aloo chaat at home, we need boiled potatoes which is pan roasted with a simple spice mix, once they are roasted and well coated with the spices, just top it with beaten curd, green chutney and sweet chutney, few chopped tomatoes, chopped onions.

I went for pan roasting the already cooked and cubed potatoes, if you want to make it more healthy, just skip the pan roasting and simply make this chaat with cubed potatoes. This chaat makes an excellent fasting dish if you skip onions. However rock salt is also added instead of usual salt in this Dahi aloo chaat as this salt is considered as a fasting salt. Also not to forget you can add sprouted moongdal to this chaat.

This chaat can also be garnished with almost anything, diced cucumber, bellpepper, pomegranate seeds, cooked chikcpeas or even shredded coconut. Many version of Aloo dahi chaat exists, we simply enjoyed having this chaat for our lunch, a plate of this dahi aloo chaat is quite enough to fill your tummy.
